we were in Corsica during last two weeks, and even placed under the chassis of your Mog, I have recognized the famous 12 Km long Saleccia tracks in the desert of Agriates, north of the island, isn't it ?
Congratulations for the great work you did on your loveable truck !
It's attached with the standard mounting plate with a 3M adhesive that - as you can see in the video - is not the best solution
After that experiment (is the first one) I have used a disinfectant for cleaning the bumper surface and it seems that now the 3M adhesive is working fine.
p.s. Iain I have to write an update for my roff rack construction: you are absolutly right. My pipe bender is not able to bend thin pipes....
Following some new regarding our camper construction.
We are trying to build a roof rack, but my pipe bender is not able to bend thin pipes.
So, I try to build the roof rack without bends following the example of the unicat roof racks.
I start with the mounting plates
Next I made the holes on the vertical pipe to put the 60x30mm support.
Welding the roof rack is an acrobatic activity
And here how appear the first result!
What do you think about that?
Has them new for 575 euro each. Used isn't much less.
Fortunately you have 2 spares.
I carried 1 mounted spare + 2 unmounted in Australia. Only 1 place in Australia has 395/85R20 XZLs new - in Perth - $1800 each.
